Description Tom Horsley 2005-01-28 20:17:15 EST
Description of problem: I run up2date on fc3, it downloads headers, shows me the choices I have to pick from, I click on "select all" and then the text field near the bottom of the screen says something like "total size of selected packages 73kb" The 73kb is obvious nonsense (this latest up2date run included all the openoffice components for gosh sake :-). Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): latest fc3 with all updates How reproducible: all the time Steps to Reproduce: 1. see description above 2. 3. Actual results: really small number Expected results: really large number Additional info:

It's done that since nigh on RedHat 6.2, which is as far back as I've used RH. It appears to be about equal to the number of packages you're updating (I'm guessing it's telling us the size of the header files it gets?). It would make more sense if it said "Number of packages to update," or "Size of header files downloaded." Or even better, if it calculated the actual size of all the packages to be updated and reported it. Or you could just keep it there for posterity. Or to trick us.

Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test release, reopen and change the version to match. Thank you!

Closing per lack of response to previous comment. If this still occurs on FC3 or FC4 and is a security issue, please assign to Fedora Legacy and the appropriate version. The bug could also be filed against RHEL if it is relevant there. up2date has been replaced by pirut and pup in FC5 and FC6, the still fully supported versions of Fedora Core, so this bug will not be fixed unless it is a security issue.
